Supplier Policies and Guidelines

The University of Mary Washington highly values its vendors and appreciates the outstanding services they provide to the University. Our goal is to treat our vendors fairly and with respect.

Vendors sometimes seek to express their appreciation for the University’s business, especially during the holiday season. Vendors can best convey their appreciation by continuing to promptly provide high-quality goods and excellent, reliable services at the best possible prices.

The University, as an Agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and its employees are subject to the Virginia Comprehensive Conflict of Interests Act as well as the Governing Rules. The University is a member of the National Association of Educational Procurement and endorses and supports its Code of Ethics. One provision of the Code, reads, “decline personal gifts and gratuities.” In keeping with that Code and the Laws of the Commonwealth, and in the spirit of a professional public entity, the employees of the University do not accept gifts of any kind from vendors.

We greatly appreciate your understanding and support of this Policy. We look forward to your continuing business in the years ahead.
